Former U.S. Women’s National Team Star Talks About Her AYSO Experience, Youth Soccer And Title Ix
The No. 11 that Julie Foudy wore on her jersey when she won two World Cups and two Olympic gold medals dates back to her days as an AYSO player in Southern California.
AYSO runs on volunteer power. There are 220,000 volunteers around the country making sure everyone plays! AYSO volunteers are mostly parents of current players, but also siblings, grandparents, parents of former players, neighbors and even active players themselves. AYSO volunteers give each child the precious gift of their time.
When you are watching sports, have you noticed that the first thing that the players do when they have a break is get something to drink? They drink every chance they get throughout the game. That's how important proper hydration is to safety and athletic performance.
